EBPC Neighbourhood Plan - Not just about housing!

Posted on December 30, 2016

This is the December 2016 update from the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.

This article was published in December 2016. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

EBPC's Steering Group (made up of Parish Councillors and volunteer residents) are continuing to write the Neighbourhood Plan in order to protect our village from unwanted housing development.

However, a Neighbourhood Plan is not just about housing and is great opportunity for residents to propose positive ideas that can improve our health and wellbeing, for example by identifying new village facilities or improving the quality of any new buildings.

In our Neighbourhood Plan, we could support opportunities that protect and maximise communal green and open spaces that will encourage the children, young people and adult residents of Eaton Bray to be more physically active. This could include looking at new ways to promote healthy lifestyle choices such as planting a community orchard or improving walking and cycle paths and marking routes that we could use for our regular trips through the village on foot, rather than in the car.

Eaton Bray is a village fully surrounded by the open countryside of the Green Belt and with so many historical and environmental assets to enjoy. The Eaton Bray Neighbourhood Plan will help protect these.

We hope you found this update useful and in coming months we will provide information of the further work of the Steering Group. If you feel you can offer any support please come along to our meetings. However support doesn't need to be attending monthly meetings, perhaps you have the time to help with data collection/research.

Contact the Parish Clerk at - please feel free to attend the next Steering Group meeting.

Meetings are planned for the last Monday of the month at 19:30hrs at the Coffee Tavern, Eaton Bray.
